CARDIFF CREATIVE DAY
Get those creative juices flowing with our creative workshops where guests learn new skills (and show off hidden talents) while enjoying the company of colleagues and friends in a relaxed environment. The main focus of the creative day is a fun shared experience for everybody, where guests have the opportunity to try things they've never tried before and have lots of fun doing it!
Art and the nature of this environment inspires creative thinking and guests will be encouraged to 'think outside of the box' throughout the event.
Our workshops are structured so that participants will have a set time to complete a project. The workshops can run as a complete event or can fit into other activities.
Guests will be given a demonstration on the chosen art and craft. Then they will start work on their own projects with an art tutor on hand to guide and offer advice. At the end of the session participants can take their work home with them. Depending on the projects, items take from 30 minutes to half day to complete.
The creative workshops can be just one workshop or a selection for participants to enjoy. Please choose from the following workshops:
Using multimedia and collage materials the group will be amazed at what they can achieve with simple techniques and lots of paints.
We will demonstrate some ideas but we are looking for wacky designs not just the traditional white icing.
Groups work together to make giant puppets and masks for a colourful display at the end of the event.
After the tutor demostrates methods of using clay for sculpting, they'll demonstrate making simple pots, figures and 3-D decoration, then it's over to the guests.
Paint and print onto cloth bags, cushion covers and t-towels. The techniques demonstrated include block printing, brush painting and stenciling.
Learn some of the techniques used in glass painting, such as dipping, painting and leading.
Jazzing up Junk
Recycle items by creating them into useable and beautiful objects, methods include mosaic, painting and decoupage techniques. Revamp old frames, chairs, furniture, vases, trays, kitchen utensils and crockery.
Hand crafted jewellery is very popular now and to make your own is not only easy but great fun too.
Using materials such as fabrics, feathers, gems and paints to decorate full face masks in any theme desired.
A simple technique to follow, perfect for making individual items and also making bigger team masterpieces. Using a variety of colourful mosaic tiles, create anything from teapot stands to wall plagues.
A studio is set up with still life exhibits such as fruit bowls, flower arrangements and bold painted canvases. Famous Picasso prints are displayed around the studio for decoration and inspiration and easels are set up to make guests feel they are in Picasso’s Studio. We include ceramic painting, paper maché and acrylic painting in the studio so there is something for everyone.
It’s messy, but it’s fun! Our experienced potter will demonstrate the skills involved in throwing a pot. Then it’s time to roll up those sleeves and have a try yourself.
Sculpture is not just about using clay it also involves using mod-roc, paper, metal, fabrics, junk and mixed media. There is lots of scope for creativity and creating large projects.
Silk Painting is a delicate craft where patience and procession is required. To give participants a head start they will be supplied with a silk item, which has an outline design. They then have to colour in the design with special silk paints in vibrant colours.
Use various materials including felt, wool, silks, ribbons, fur fabrics and feathers to create anything such as wall hangings, bags or scarves.
Everyone works together in a 'paint along' session, following the steps of a demonstration so you will end the day with a painting you can take home with pride.
